After driving past this hotel since the sixties I finally got to stay here. It always appeared rundown from the road but is now a Holiday Inn & has been refurbished. The rooms are spacious & luxurious, there's a flat screen TV on the wall and a fridge with complementary chocolate bars. There was a function on when I was... More

It is a Holiday Inn so it has that standard feel - but the architecture feels a bit different to many ready built we are so used to. The staff are very friendly and always willing to help - the food is not bad at all Beware of the parking outside - it is monitored by Parking Eye so make... More

I would echo the words of many other reviewers of the hotel, it is exactly what you would expect from a modern hotel. We used it as a stop over location, we were really pleased with our choice, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the hotel was immaculately maintained and clean, the room was a good size, we ate...

I prefer to use Tripadvisor for positive feedback but I'm sufficiently disappointed by this place to write a negative review. Our group stayed here overnight whilst attending a training conference this weekend. To my knowledge our group organisers were sadly not advised that a grand, rowdy celebration would be taking place directly underneath our bedrooms! LOUD music went on until... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your recent stay here at the hotel. It is really disappointing to read such a poor review, the last thing any guest wants when they visit a hotel is for a poor nights sleep. We unfortunately got it wrong on this occasion, and we should have allocated all... More

Stayed here for 1 night in February to break a long journey up and this was the ideal place for it. The amenities were good enough, the food was nice and the staff/service top notch...especially Kate who does a sterling job. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

A really good hotel for the price you pay. Looks like the hotel had been recently upgraded. We went for an upgraded room which was really big and had everything you needed. The staff were friendly and helped organise taxis. It wasn't luxury but was a great stop over on way to a wedding. Didn't get time to try the... More

The hotel is imacculate, clean, friendly, comfortable what more would you want for the price we paid. We ate in the bar in the evening as the Italian menu did not appeal to us, the food was good and the staff were very pleasant. Had a good nights sleep but were woken up by the glass recycling truck before 7am,... More
